Educators A-Z of Twitter

As we move into our last week, let’s start thinking about the mechanics of Twitter.

Here is a great infographic from #ukedchat that you can refer to as you need to.  Try to spend some time learning about Twitter norms. Thanks to Stacey Wallwin for sharing this on Twitter yesterday.

Retweeting Value-Added to Your PLN

Today we are looking at how to use the “retweet” feature in Twitter to help share valuable resources and ideas with the people in your Professional Learning Network.

The ideas are explained in this screencast.

 

Activities for Learning

  1. Find a tweet in your Twitter stream that looks like it would be valuable to others.  Check out what it offers.  If you find it valuable, retweet it to your followers, adding your own appropriate hashtags and tagging others [only] if it will be of particular value to them.
